Singer Loreen Of Sweden Makes History At The Eurovision Song Contest
Swedish singer Loreen is “seriously overwhelmed” right now, having just won the Eurovision Song Contest for the second time – the first woman to do so.
The win is significant, not just for her but for Sweden as well, as it becomes the seventh time the country would win the award.
Described as the world’s biggest live music event, The Eurovision Song Contest was hosted by Britain on behalf of Ukraine, an Eastern European country currently countering Russia’s invading forces.
The finale of the show pitted Loreen against 25 other contestants, and she bested them all, emerging winner in what she would describe as a “surreal” experience and “so beautiful.” She should know, after all, no other woman has ever won the show twice. She has set a record for others to follow.
Loreen, whose given name is Lorine Talhaoui, earned her victory with a dance-pop number dubbed “Tattoo.” If you haven’t listened to the song, you might want to check it out at the end of this post.
The song bears a message of hope and will definitely inspire those clamouring for peace in Ukraine. For now, sadly, the battle for the soul of Kyiv continues.
You can have your “Tattoo” now.
